The clay tower is handmade from a slab of clay. Bisque fired to 1600 degrees, then smoked in a sawdust burn pit for 24 hours, with chemical salts. It’s a very unpredictable process, yet exciting as I try to create a book that will work with the clay form.
Hanging from a twig is an original binding that contains two quotes of inspiration. A quote from Albert Einstein and one from Jim Morrison.
The binding sits gently into grooves placed on the top of the tower form.
A book sits in a small chamber at the base of this tower, it has a coptic binding, sewing together 17 signatures of Arches Text Wove 100% cotton paper. Each signature is 3 sheets thick making a total of over 100 pages to write words of inspiration on.
The book measures 4.75″ x 2.6″ x 1.5″, the cover paper is hand marbled
and the end sheets are Japanese paper.
